C-Murder Conviction Upheld
Louisiana rapper C-Murder’s sentence was upheld today in a Louisiana appeals court.
The rapper, whose real name is Corey Miller, is the brother of Percy Miller, also known as No Limit Forever founder Master P.
The three judge panel from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Miller’s defense that he didn’t get a fair trial in the shooting of a teenager in 2002.
Seven years later, the jury convicted Miller of second degree murder in 2009 for killing the 16-year-old boy in a nightclub.
Miller claims the judge who carried out the trial allowed jurors to hear prejudicial and unsubstantiated testimony, and that witnesses were threatened.
In addition to the aforementioned claims, Miller says the prosecution intentionally eliminated Black people from the jury. All claims were denied.
According to ABC News, one of Miller’s attorneys didn’t immediately return phone calls.
